A touch of romance

for Sadje’s What Do You See? picture prompt.




As I gaze into your eyes, my heart flutters. As I stroke your hand, you smile. We raise our glasses, touch them gently but utter not a word, no need. I hand you a red rose, a symbol of our love …..


‘Oy, wake up, you lazy devil. Look you’ve spilt beer in your lap, you’ve knocked over my flowers and you’re dribbling like a two-year-old. 

Now get your fat ass into the kitchen, you’ve got the washing up to do, and when you’ve done that you can get me a cup of tea and don’t forget my hot water bottle!


My eyes start to close my eyes and I drift away. I feel a prod. Okay, I’m going!

    Ah poor man! Little did he know, when a dreamy eyed young boy, that such would be his fate 😀

    Poor fellow! Relationships are not always what we expect them to be. Excellent take on the prompt, Keith, and thanks for joining in.

    I love the twisting turn of events from stroking her hand to sounding like a bitter old couple 😀 Great use of the photo! I needed that laugh as well.

    Sounds like wifey there needs to meet the ‘hero’ of my story…;) Very very good writing Keith! Thanks for directing me over to read it!

    Brilliant, Keith! I wondered what had got into you at the start… 😉🤣
